Video: Floyd Mayweather kills Dana White with kindness on 'Barfly'

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White recently sat down with "Barfly" host and FOX Sports columnist Mark Kriegel at the Palm restaurant to break down all the current events in the world of mixed martial arts (MMA) and beyond.

And they're joined by Al Bundy Ed O'Neill!

No topic was safe, including the UFC 145 main event between Jon Jones vs. Rashad Evans, performance enhancing drugs (PEDs) in sports (including Alistair Overeem) and yes, even Boxing champion Floyd "Money" Mayweather, one of White's favorite topics.

"Me and Floyd have been going at each other in the media quite a bit, recently when he made the Jeremy Lin comments and I called him a racist. The other night I'm playing cards at the Palms and [someone] taps me on the back, I turn around, it's Floyd. He says 'I just wanted to tell you, what you're doing with the UFC is awesome, man. I'm happy for you, really happy everything's going well.' I said 'Well, thank you.' Now don't I feel like the biggest dick in the world? I'm out there smashing him and he's killing me with kindness."

A far cry from his "ignorant outburst" back in February. See the rest of the Barfly installments after the jump.
